Introducing My Newest Doll: Rainbow Baby (Part 3)

My pregnancy progressed with characteristic morning sickness.  We did not want to announce our pregnancy until we were past the first trimester.  After an exciting announcement like a new baby, it is so difficult to announce a miscarriage.  It was not easy to hide when I threw up several times a day.  My husband finally…

I discovered I was pregnant just before my 40th birthday.  Whew!  Just before the deadline I had imposed upon myself.  A few weeks into the pregnancy I started the characteristic bleeding that I had experienced with all of my miscarriages, as well as with my younger daughter.  We were headed off on a cruise to…

On a Babymoon

On a Babymoon

We just returned from a glorious weekend in the Florida Keys.  Just my husband and I.  It came on the heels of a big production of Beauty & the Beast that my children were involved in.  It was sandwiched between that and their dance recital, co-op final exams and reaching that magic full term window…

Passport 2 Purity weekend with my doll

Talking about sex with your tween daughter?  Yikes!  No one’s favorite activity!  But, last year I did something very exciting and productive with my oldest daughter.  We used Family Life Today’s Passport2Purity–Weekend Retreat Kit to create a fun and purposeful mother daughter getaway for my 12 year old and I.  Valuing purity cannot be taught well when…
